#GivingTuesday - A Day to Give Online - Giving back to the students and families
The Brehm School Foundation has joined #GivingTuesday, a first of its kind effort that will harness the collective power of a unique blend of partners-charities, families, businesses and individuals-to transform how people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season. Coinciding with the Thanksgiving Holiday and the kickoff of the holiday shopping season, #GivingTuesday will inspire people to take collaborative action to improve their local communities, give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they support and help create a better world. Taking place December 3, 2013, #GivingTuesday will harness the power of social media to create a national moment around the holidays dedicated to giving, similar to how Black Friday and Cyber Monday have become days that are, today, synonymous with holiday shopping.
Brehm School Foundation joined the movement in hopes of bringing in scholarship and financial aid money to help with tuition assistance for current and future students. An anonymous donor pledged $100,000 and as a commitment to the donor and the families of Brehm, Brehm Foundation is fundraising to match the pledge.
